Barbecue Friday with Zach Parker

SFA had the good fortune to know Ricky Parker, and filmmaker Joe York produced a feature-length documentary on his whole hog barbecue business in Lexington, Tennessee. Many years later, Joe returned to Lexington to make this short film about Zach Parker, son of the late Ricky Parker, who now owns and operates Scott’s-Parker Bar-B-Q. The opportunity to share footage of Zach as a child helping his dad, and now Zach as an adult taking over his dad’s role, makes this a unique project in SFA’s film library.
